It turns out the father of medicine was right about this too and scientists and doctors are finally studying the gut in grave detail in an attempt to understand chronic disease and inflammation.
Do you feel too bloated or uncomfortable after a milkshake or a cold coffee? Do you get allergic rhinitis, a stuffy nose or have trouble with your food allergies? Do some foods make you sicker than others? Well, you aren't alone. A lot of us aren't blessed with the strongest and healthiest stomachs and have to deal with issues like bloating, IBD, Chrohns disease among others.
Your gut is responsible for a lot more than just your digestion. Fortified with millions of tiny organisms (bacteria), the gut works tirelessly to protect your body against invaders and pathogens, improves immune response, helps with digestion and regulates mood. Scientists are beginning to realise that the easiest way to rid your body of lifestyle diseases and boost longevity is to heal and nourish your gut. New research suggests that a healthy gut can help you lose weight, fight cancer, prevent heart disease, improve blood sugar levels and alleviate and stabilise your mood. Doctors are beginning to embrace the gut brain connection and realise that there are more nerve endings in the gut than we had anticipated- making the 'gut' the second brain. The functional way to address depression and anxiety is to re-programme your gut and nourish it with great comforting food. So what are you waiting for? its about time we started to focus on making our gut healthier.
